By: Sarah Bower. Violante discovers a Lucrezia unknown to those who see only a scheming harlot, and all the whispers about her brother, Cesare Borgia, never revealed the soul of the man who dances close with Violante.
But those who enter the House of Borgia are never quite the same when they leave—if they leave at all. Along with her father and brothers, Cesare Borgia, Giovanni Borgia, and Jofre Borgia, Lucrezia is the political pawn as they arrange marriages for her with rich and influential men. Donna Lucrezia is to be married again into the household of Este, a very prominent family. Violante is baptized as a Catholic and is the lady-in-waiting to Lucrezia from Violante is also a pawn in this family, as she finds herself hopelessly in love with Cesare but she is just another in a long line of mistress's.
There have been many different descriptions of Lucrezia in history but this story portrays her in a more human light than the rumors that surround her as a cruel murderous woman. Violante is very innocent and finds that things are not what they seem to the outside world. She finds that she can trust no one.
This is a very well researched story of the Borgia family, who are more corrupt than the Tudor court could ever have been. I did find myself a bit irritated with Violante on how she clung to her feelings for Cesare and put up with the treatment that she received from him and his very powerful family. This was the first book I read about the Borgias, other than what I read in the history books.

A very interesting family. Historical fiction at its best depicting the most notorious family in history. I recommend it to the historical fiction fan. It Happened One Bite. Rich, titled, and undead, gentleman vampyre James Maitland fears himself doomed to a cold and lonely existence—until Scottish witch Blaire Lindsay arrives, and things begin to heat up considerably…. Then, beautiful Scottish witch Blaire Lindsay arrives, and things begin to heat up considerably…. But when she discovers the handsome prisoner in the bowels of the castle, Blaire has no idea that she has unleashed anything more than a man who sets her heart on fire ….
Not much more. This book is a very sensual read about a vampyre, James, who has been interred for a very long time by a coven of witches.
His goal is to find a ring that is special to him for various reasons and he needs to find the witches that put him in the cellar of the castle or their descendantsso he can continue with his life. The problem is, he has to find this ring in the castle that was recently inherited by the feisty Blaire's brother Aiden. The sparks fly immediately in this tale of good and bad, in more ways then one, as Blaire can shoot balls of fire out of her hands.
I liked the character of Blaire, but I mostly enjoyed the antics of her little brother Bran. Cute kid.

I enjoyed reading this great book. I received this book from Pump Up Your Books and was not compensated monetarily for my review. Alice in Zombieland. By: ,. Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do. Her sister had seemed very displeased about having to accompany her against her will down to the graveyard that sprawled adjacent to their home. Alice loved to stroll through the graveyard, to pick the funereal flowers from old grassy knolls where someone dead most certainly must lie beneath.
For her, there was always adventure in a graveyard. Tea and a sandwich would be nice. Perhaps a nice meat pie, if the cook could be bothered to bake one up. For their cook made the best meat pies in the world and Alice could think of no better meal than a delicious hot meat pie. Oh dear! I shall be late! Clods of gray dirt sat all around its edge and a displeasing smell seemed to waft up from it. In another moment, down went Alice after it, hardly considering how in the world she was to get out again. Then she was tumbling forward into the stinking, black grave which went straight on like a tunnel for some way, and then dipped suddenly down, so suddenly that Alice had not a moment to think about stopping herself before she found herself falling down and down.
On the way down, she hit her head upon the leaning tombstone, and tears filled her eyes for a moment as she tumbled forward. Either the grave was very deep, or she fell very slowly, for she had plenty of time as she went down to look about her and to wonder what was going to happen next. First, she checked the smarting place on her head and pulled back a small hand coated with bright red blood.
